With the philosophy of “contributing to the sustainable development of society by developing and supplying renewable energy,” we ensure we have compliance-based management, which requires Directors and all members of staff to act with high ethical value when implementing business, as our basic principle. To improve the effectiveness of compliance-based management, a system to promote compliance is reinforced, and we are making efforts to implement our business quickly and accurately, in order to gain the trust of society.
We have set up “Guidelines for Compliance Activities,” which are the core of our compliance activities, as a code of conduct based on the spirit of law observance and corporate ethics that must be adhered to during our business activities. These Guidelines are used to raise awareness of our members of staff. Company-wide compliance is overseen by the president, and a system to promote compliance has been set up whereby an officer in charge of compliance has been assigned. Their role is to support the president and to implement activities to promote compliance. In addition, we are moving forward with a plan to set up a “consultation desk for compliance issues” available for members of staff to consult when they face compliance-related issues.
For the main institutions such as biomass power plants, we have set up “Compliance Committees for Specific Institutions” to implement compliance activities that suit the individual features of each institution. Group companies also participate in these compliance committees to work on compliance activities by the group as a whole.
